QUEBEC CITY, June 16, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Industrial Alliance is pleased to announce that it has received authorization from the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF) to act as administrator of a voluntary retirement savings plan (VRSP), the new retirement savings vehicle that will come into effect on July 1, 2014.

The Industrial Alliance VRSP will therefore be available to employers and individuals in Quebec as soon as it has been registered. "At Industrial Alliance, we care about the financial situation of Quebecers. That's why we will soon be offering them this new and beneficial retirement savings solution represented by the VRSP," stated Renée Laflamme, Vice-President, Group Savings and Retirement. The Industrial Alliance VRSP will be a simple, flexible, low-cost solution that will allow thousands of Quebecers to ensure themselves a better financial future.

The VRSP was created by the government of Quebec to help deal with the serious lack of retirement savings across the province. In adding the VRSP to its range of group retirement plans, Industrial Alliance is once again demonstrating its commitment to improving the financial situation of Quebec's future retirees.
